Is this sentence more common/proper than to say "Er bordet renere end det var i går?"?

"Is the table cleaner than yesterday?" as opposed to "Is the table cleaner than it was yesterday?" They're saying the same thing, just in two slightly different ways.

Okay. I know, but every language is slightly different. I didn't just want to assume that what was true for English was also true for Danish.

Nice to know that errors of comparison are common in Danish as well.
